In all traditions, Spirit means breath or wind:

Our word Spirit is derived from the Latin Spiritus, which means breath. For the Greeks, the Spirit is known as Pneuma, a term which also means breath. The Hebrew word Ruah is synonymous with wind. Yahweh is derived from the root HWY, which also means wind.

The consistency in these different terms in not fortuitous. It results from the intuition of the Unconscious, which makes clear that to know the Spirit is to know the breath of God. This reminds on of the passages in the New Testament which describes the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost:

“Suddenly a sound came form heaven

Like the rush of a mighty wind

And it filled the house where we were sitting”

In India, this breath is known as Brahmachaitanya, the Breath of God. In the tradition of the Vedanta, the Prasana Upanishad(commented by Shankaracharia) declares: “in the heart resides the Atman, the Self. It is the centre of a hundred and one little channels….In these moves…the breath”.

Everyone who has felt cool vibrations reports the same feelings: a pleasant cool wind blowing in one`s hands, on top of one`s head or sometimes around the body.

Although self-realisation is being given a-mass since the last 37 years, there is not much information about cool vibrations on Internet. Here is my small contribution to this very special topic.

What fascinates me the most about the whole thing is that:

1. Cool vibrations are the material manifestation of spirituality to me (material because it can be not only felt but also measured with the modern medical technology)

2. I can not influence feeling cool vibrations!  – vibrations can be also hot, or warm, or less pleasant. Whatever I percept, i cannot influence it with my will or mental power. I cannot command it! Either it is cool or not. Truly amazing!

3.That cool vibrations seem to lead their own live or to be a kind of a living being: suddenly in the middle of a talk/film/writing/meditation they would blow powerfully all around and then just calm down to a little breeze or even warmth.

In many scriptures this experience is reported as being accompanied by a wind, or coolness, for example  (more…)
